This is somthing which seems to be being developed by a number of companies including Open Mind and Mazak.

There is a company in the UK, CloudNC which you may have heard of. This company was formed out of a research project where the founders were using additive and could not understand why CNC machining could not be as simple. They have invested a lot of effort and research in creating a cloud based CAM system that iterates through all the possible  cutting methods to find the quickest and best method. The aim of the company is not to sell the sftware, but to use it to expand with a large number of subcontract shops around the world. Each shop will use the software and will have identical kit. The objective is to have a step change in CAM and manufacturing.

With the developments at other CAM vendors and at Mazak it will be interesting to see if their competitive advantage with this technology will be eroded as others in the industry catch up.

Clearly if using AI in CAM was that easy it would have been done long ago.
